Red itchy vagina, no discharge or odour. I've had this before and it went away on its own so didn't need to see a gp. Is there a way to cure itching?

In brief: Yes but..

You will need to identify the cause in order to "cure" it.
For example, you could be allergic to seminal fluid or the latex condom after intercourse. Yeast infection may at times lead to itching as well. If none of the above provides the answer, you will need to see your gp if it bothers you enough.

In brief: Vaginal pruritus

Vaginal itching is a tingling or uneasy irritation of the skin of the vagina and the surrounding area (vulva).
The itching may cause a desire to scratch the affected area. Causes common causes of vaginal itching include: chemical irritants such as detergents, fabric softeners, feminine sprays, ointments, creams, douches, and contraceptive foams or jellies. Menopause. A drop in the hormone estrogen causes vaginal dryness. Stress may increase vaginal itching and make you more susceptible to infections. Vaginal yeast infection vaginitis. Vaginitis in girls before puberty is common. If a young girl has a sexually transmitted vaginal infection, however, sexual abuse must be considered and addressed.
